Very delighted that I was able to get parts needed to make repairs myself. Thanks for stocking repair parts. I was afraid that I would need to replace my tow bar, or worse yet, having to go to Nebraska to factory for repairs again. You solved my problem - thanks 461340

Service is spectacular! Order pulled and shipped the same day. Only issue I have is with the manufacturer. They put Loc Tite Blue on the allen screws when they know this has to be disassembled to put on your tow bar. They need to provide the Loctite and not pre-apply it or include instructions to use it during assembly. 667553

Working fine, but tough installation without the special tool. 572603



- BX84-0178
by:

Installation was easy with the tool. when removing the tool after the pin is put in you need to use some force to get it off, i used a hammer. 525905

We discovered that the passenger side of our tow bar was not locking in as we were leaving a RV Park we had been staying at for a couple of months. The folks at Blue Ox diagnosed the problem over the phone and referred me to etrailer for the part. Since we were trying to get on the road we opted for next day delivery. The part was delivered shortly after 10:00 AM the next day. Noah, the etrailer phone rep, knew what his business and was extremely helpful. 522304

Working great. I order two of the repair kits and had the other side replaced when we got home.

I am on vacation and my tow bar broke. I searched the internet for someone who might have the parts I needed and etrailer came up with a nice web site that allowed me to find my part quickly and with the least amount of trouble compared to other web sites. My parts arrived as they were scheduled to be delivered and I have spent the afternoon fixing my problem. I am very impressed with etrailer and will start my searches with them next time. 270813

Product is more than I expected. It was a complete assembly to replace a partially broken assembly. Hopefully I can get it together. Wish it came with detailed assembly instructions to insure proper operation by an amateur mechanic..... 233380


Comments

recently stopped RVing. but the product worked exceptionally well....as has all the Blue Ox products that I have had over the past years. the best sign of the Blue Ox professionalism in products and customer satisfaction is this personal reaching out to their base and requesting comments.....keep it up. Blue Ox is an example other businesses should follow

I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox who said that you can do the install without the tool though if you wanted to try. You will need to use 2 flathead screwdrivers...
